Sorry it's short this week but I hope you enjoy the pictures!
In celebration of the Fourth of July, we wore red, white and blue, sang hymns about America, talked about why we love America basically all day, and had the only American food in Nagasaki besides KFC - McDonalds! It was definitely a lot different than I've ever celebrated it before! But still fun! It was a little strange to be here where nobody else was celebrating.
We met a really really nice lady the other day and she invited us back to have Okonomiyaki which is like a savory eggy pancake with cabbage and such with a barbecue like sauce and dried fish on top. It was really yummy!
Yuki Chan is still doing awesome! She came to church for the first time yesterday and really liked it, she said she felt really peaceful during the service!
Since coming out, I've realized how important member missionary work is! It's just as, if not more important than normal missionary work! The missionaries move around and change, but the members will be there when the missionaries aren't! And so we need awesome member missionaries to share the gospel and also to help those who are new!
I love you all!
The lady who made us Okonomiyaki also gave us these stuffed animals! And a bunch of other random stuff!
Clinger choro made us bread

The infamous Nato (fermented soybeans) it's really webby and theJapanese people love it! Usually missionaries think it's disgusting,
It's not too bad once you get over the texture, which is super webby, and kind of like mucus but it's not terrible. They usually eat it for breakfast here, some people like to mix in a raw egg with it...yum
This is Aiko Shimai and her adorable baby!
